Welcome to the Seven Forums

I tried to download this theme to test but a person needs a account and it uses a download manager that adds a toolbar so it's not going to happen.

Most of them themes like that have the shellstyle.dll in the theme folder edited to point to those images in a folder, you may need to ask theme maker to help.
